Famed for making shoes for the late Princess Diana (the Princess of Wales), Datuk Prof. Jimmy Choo OBE’s beautiful creations have adorned the feet of royalty, celebrities and pop stars.

Since establishing his couture label in 1986, Choo’s made-to-order designs have included an extensive range of hand beaded, hand stitched and personalised shoes ranging from slippers, sandals, mules to boots. In 1996, building upon his already strong presence in Britain and his growing international reputation, Choo launched his ready-to-wear line and subsequently sold his share of the ready-to-wear business in November 2001 to Equinox Luxury Holdings Ltd entrusting them to carry on his hallmark of comfort and elegance to the luxury goods market, whilst he himself continued to operate his couture line.

Professor Choo who still actively works with his team in the design and production of bespoke handmade shoes to selected clientele under his new label Zhou Yang JIe; is also a firm support for education, as Ambassador for Footwear Education at the London College of Fashion and a spokesperson for the British Council in their promotion of British Education to foreign students.

Datuk Prof. Jimmy Choo OBE is a firm believer in ‘Creativity Through Skills’, a slogan he is promoting. He commented, “It is important to be skilled in order to become a good designer. A designer should not just be someone who is good at sketching but also be well versed and knowledgeable in every aspect of the making of any creation.”
